Drake Accuses Billboard Of Rigging Charts To Slow Down His Success

Media Take Out Staff |

Drake claims that after the success of his album Scorpion, Billboard fixed its charting system to make it fairer for his competition.

“I mean, at the end of the day, ever since we were dunning off the charts from Scorpion, they fixed the charts anyway. So it is what it is. You know, they had to give other people a fair shot,” he told DJ Akademiks and 21 Savage. “We’ll do what we do. It’s more about the feeling, the momentum; it’s not about how long it stays.”

Drake is not the first rapper to claim Billboard’s system is rigged. Tekashi 6ix9ine made similar claims when he was released from prison.

“I want the world to know Billboard is a lie. You can buy No.1s on Billboard,” he said in 2020. “Billboard illegally disqualified 20m streams so [GOOBA] can drop down and the people who bought the No.1, which was Stuck With U, can go to No.1. ”

Billboard denied his allegations.
